Born, growing, and becoming old are the phases that will be passed by all human beings. In elderly phase, body’s condition will degenerate, both physically and psychologically. One way to prevent it is by doing physical exercise. Elder people in Indonesia has been increasing in number and now reaching 18 million people. However, only a few of elder people who doing exercise. Some of the reasons are because of limited facilities, the needs of help to do exercise, and lack of knowledge about their needs of physical training. From the collected data by using qualitative and quantitative methods, it was found that the most fragile body part of elderly group was leg. Therefore, the designed tools will focus on leg exercises. Designing process is starting by determining the design aspects which is needed in production. This aspects will be a guidance for the writer in making alternative sketches. The creative process begins with making some alternative sketches until final design which has been improved by improving aesthetic model and medical side adjustment is acquired. Furthermore, the final design’s prototype is tested in a group for the elderly. The result of this research is a tool of physical exercise that focuses on the leg of elderly that can be done independently at home safely and comfortably without the help of others. Given this framework, the elderly group can do regular exercise with duration of 20 to 35 minutes for an elderly that has a medium health condition and 35 to 50 minutes for the good ones. This exercise can be done as much as two times a week. It is expected that the elderly group in Indonesia will have a higher level of health and life expectancy.
